Course Description: 

The Portrait Co-op provides opportunity to work independently from live portrait models in a relaxed, collegial environment once a week on Friday mornings. Portrait subjects return to their pose for three consecutive sessions to enable artists to progress toward completion while working from life. Portrait subjects are drawn from both professional and non-professional models. Co-op members bring a diverse level of artistic background and the ability to work independently. These workshops do not include critique or instruction, but provide attendees the opportunity to work at their own pace with materials of their own preference. The usual model fee paid by co-op members is $7 per 3-hour session. It is the practice that people registered for any of the three Maryland Hall drawing/painting co-ops are welcome to attend sessions of the other two co-ops (morning figure/evening figure/morning portrait) by paying the model fee for sessions they attend. Portrait co-op artwork is exhibited in the Maryland Hall café alcove throughout the year. For more information, please contact John Eden at
